Question 9: Do you support, object, or have any comments relating to the approach to Housing set out in the Delivery Statement?

Representation ID: 21201

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Kier Living Eastern Ltd

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The proposal to only allocate housing sites where there is a reasonable prospect of delivery can be evidenced is fully supported, and accords with paragraph 67 of the NPPF.

The requirement for delivery plans to be submitted with planning applications is supported, but it is important to recognise that there may be unforeseen material changes in circumstances which could impact the delivery of an allocation, and consequently, a degree of flexibility will be required to ensure viable and sustainable development.

Question 11: Do you support, object, or have any comments relating to the approach to Infrastructure set out in the Delivery Statement?

Representation ID: 21202

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Kier Living Eastern Ltd

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

Whilst there is support, in principle, for the proposed approach to infrastructure, particularly the need for key stakeholders to work collaboratively, the Delivery Statement should make it clear that infrastructure requirements will be proportionate to each development and based on clear assessments of need. Failure to do this will result in certain developments being rendered unviable and, therefore, undeliverable.

Question 13: Do you agree with the proposed Settlement Hierarchy and the proposed distribution of housing within the hierarchy?

Representation ID: 21203

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Kier Living Eastern Ltd

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The proposed Settlement Hierarchy is supported; the Norwich Urban Area, including the fringe parishes such as Old Catton and Sprowston, is clearly the most sustainable location for growth, given the range of services available, and it is therefore appropriate to focus the majority of growth here.

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Kier Living Eastern Ltd

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The proposed review of the Plan 5 years after Adoption is fully consistent with paragraph 33 of the NPPF. However, it should be made clear in the Policy that the review will need to be completed within 5 years of adoption.

Representation ID: 21206

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Kier Living Eastern Ltd

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The need to support sustainable growth through the provision of infrastructure improvements, such as schools and health centres, is, in principle, supported. However, the policy should recognise that infrastructure provision must be proportionate to each development, to mitigate the impacts of the specific development, based on a local need and must not undermine delivery.

Question 27: Do you support, object or have any comments relating to approach to affordable homes?

Representation ID: 21212

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Kier Living Eastern Ltd

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The Policy should delete reference to the words ‘at least’ as affordable housing requirements should not be expressed as minimums. Flexibility should be built into the policy to deviate from the stated percentages should unforeseen circumstances arise that threaten the viability of a site, or where there are changes in the most up-to-date evidence of need.
